What People Say About Dr. Christopher Prato, MD
Reply
I had to have a Hip Arthroscopy performed and had came to Dr. Prato after months of pain and getting nowhere with the current ortho doc I was seeing. He explained everything in terms that I could understand and was completely honest about what to expect. He is by far the best Ortho Doc I have ever met.
